Event description

Description

Have you ever considered the business opportunities available to Creative, Digital and Tech SMEs collaborating with the Culture, Creative and Heritage sectors?

Have Cultural and Heritage organisations considered the benefits in collaborating with creative and digital SMEs?

Want to find out more about an exciting opportunity to collaborate with like-minded people to solve a 21st century challenge?

Do you want to help the North East become a trailblazer in developing a solution to address a local, national and international challenge facing our archives and museums?

If so, then register for this event.

  • The morning plenary session will focus on the nature and scale of the challenge. Tyne & Wear Archives/Discovery Museum will share how they are currently using analogue and digital technologies to deliver their archive service and set out their ambitions for a 21st century archives model. You’ll also have the opportunity to hear from some Tech businesses about their experience of the successes they’ve had collaborating with the Culture, Creative and Heritage sectors.
  • The afternoon ‘Archive Challenge’ session will include a participative workshop which will explore what a different, digital delivery model could look like in order to address the problems currently faced across the sector.
